Garden of Chains

Release date: July 23rd 2020

 

In the beginning of the 1990's a musical revolution shooked the heavy metal community as grunge became the popular genre of hard rocking music. It was hated by some metal fans because of the stripped down sound and image, depressing lyrics and alternative attitude. Still, bands like Alice in Chains and Soundgarden are very heavy sounding musically and grunge are therefore an important part of the history of heavy metal.
